Dec. 14 8:20 AM PT9:20 AM MT10:20 AM CT11:20 AM ET16:20 GMT0:20 9:20 AM MST11:20 AM EST20:20 UAE17:2011:20 ET10:20 AM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored 17 points Wednesday, going 7 of 11 from the field, as the Phoenix Suns lost to the Toronto Raptors 115-109. Monroe pulled down 11 rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -15 in his 30:00 on the floor. He added two blocks and one steal.
Analysis: If Tyson Chandler sits, Monroe is a good fantasy option at center. If Chandler plays, Monroe might not even take the court - that's what happened Tuesday. However, of the Suns' last eight games, Chandler missed four of them and Monroe started in his place, averaging 14.3 points on 71.9 percent shooting along with 8.8 rebounds.

Monroe grabbed 11 rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -4 in his 21:47 of playing time.
Analysis: Monroe isn't getting major minutes but has been productive during his time on the court, having averaged 11.3 points on 66.7 percent shooting along with 9.3 rebounds and three assists over his last three games. The Suns' center rotation has been constantly changing, though, which makes it hard to point a finger on his true fantasy value.

Analysis: As Chriss has continued to struggle, Monroe already has a pair of 20-10 efforts in four games since joining the Suns.
Nov. 24 7:32 PM PT8:32 PM MT9:32 PM CT10:32 PM ET3:32 GMT11:32 8:32 PM MST10:32 PM EST7:32 UAE (+1)04:3222:32 ET9:32 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe went scoreless Friday on 0-of-1 shooting as the Phoenix Suns fell to the New Orleans Pelicans 115-91.

Analysis: Eric Bledsoe's return to Phoenix was the main storyline, but Monroe came through with a nice revenge performance of his own. The former Buck is now averaging 14.5 points on a solid 61.9 percent shooting rate along with 8.3 rebounds through his first four games in a Suns uniform.
Nov. 19 7:27 PM PT8:27 PM MT9:27 PM CT10:27 PM ET3:27 GMT11:27 8:27 PM MST10:27 PM EST7:27 UAE (+1)04:2722:27 ET9:27 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored 10 points Sunday on 5-of-7 shooting as the Phoenix Suns defeated the Chicago Bulls 113-105.

Monroe pulled down 11 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -2 in his 26:21 on the floor. He added one block and two steals.
Analysis: Though defense was mostly optional in this one, Monroe did make a pretty decent impression with his new team. How many more chances the well-paid center gets in Phoenix remains to be seen, but his fantasy stock may be trending upward if the Suns decide to showcase him for another potential trade.
Nov. 7 7:10 AM PT8:10 AM MT9:10 AM CT10:10 AM ET15:10 GMT23:10 8:10 AM MST10:10 AM EST19:10 UAE16:1010:10 ET9:10 AM CTNaN:� - Monroe is headed to the Suns along with a pair of draft picks for Eric Bledsoe.
Analysis: Monroe is averaging 6.8 points and 5.0 rebounds in five games this season. He's basically salary filler at this point and shouldn't be getting minutes in Phoenix while they try to develop guys like Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss. But that doesn't necessarily mean he won't play.
Oct. 29 9:57 AM PT10:57 AM MT11:57 AM CT12:57 PM ET16:57 GMT0:57 9:57 AM MST11:57 AM EST20:57 UAE17:5712:57 ET10:57 AM CTNaN:� - Monroe (sore left calf) will make his Suns debut Thursday against the Rockets.
Analysis: The calf injury prevented Monroe from playing for the Suns since being acquired from Milwaukee for Eric Bledsoe on Nov. 7. Monroe is averaging 6.8 points and 5 rebounds in five games this season. He's basically salary filler at this point and shouldn't be getting big minutes in Phoenix while the team tries to develop guys like Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss. But that doesn't necessarily mean he won't play.
Oct. 26 7:22 PM PT8:22 PM MT9:22 PM CT10:22 PM ET2:22 GMT10:22 7:22 PM MST9:22 PM EST6:22 UAE (+1)04:2222:22 ET9:22 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored eight points Thursday on 4-of-8 shooting as the Milwaukee Bucks fell to the Boston Celtics 96-89.

Oct. 23 8:03 PM PT9:03 PM MT10:03 PM CT11:03 PM ET3:03 GMT11:03 8:03 PM MST10:03 PM EST7:03 UAE (+1)05:0323:03 ET10:03 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored eight points Monday, going 4 of 9 from the field, as the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Charlotte Hornets 103-94.

Oct. 22 9:50 PM PT10:50 PM MT11:50 PM CT12:50 AM ET4:50 GMT12:50 9:50 PM MST11:50 PM EST8:50 UAE06:500:50 ET11:50 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe went scoreless Saturday on 0-of-3 shooting as the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 113-110. Monroe did not grab a rebound nor have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -3 in his 6:44 on the floor.
Analysis: After getting around 17 minutes in each of Milwaukee's first two games, Monroe was largely affixed to the bench in this one. Though still a capable low-post scorer and rebounder, he's become more and more obsolete by the year in today's small-ball, perimeter-oriented NBA.
Oct. 20 8:05 PM PT9:05 PM MT10:05 PM CT11:05 PM ET3:05 GMT11:05 8:05 PM MST10:05 PM EST7:05 UAE (+1)05:0523:05 ET10:05 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored eight points Friday, going 4 of 8 from the field, as the Milwaukee Bucks fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-97.
